It’s been 25 years of geospatial success and we are proud of how our business has evolved. Sure, there have been some growing pains and lessons learnt along the way. Our story is about looking into the future to make sure that we are prepared with products and solutions for the agile transitions that organizations need to make today.
Please see David Swann’s presentation on this at our Conference:
Day One: Wednesday May 16th: 9:45 -10:15 am
The agenda is set, presentations written, and guests invited. We have crafted a conference like no other and are looking forward sharing why the geospatial forecast is decidedly cloudy!

Getting up at 3:30am for a second time is much harder than the first that’s for sure. The tea and biscuits have yet to do their work and I’m struggling with the first session of the day. It’s a shame because the first session is actually very applicable to many clients in NZ. Mark Greninger – Geographic Information Officer of LA County discussed the move from ArcIMS to ArcGIS Server and Essentials. One of the points that he made was the importance of an active user community where users can ask questions, post code and share their experiences. In the coming weeks EGL will be launching an online forum to achieve just this.
This morning my alarm went off at 3:10am, I was attending the Geocortex 2011 User Conference, this year held entirely online and given the time difference between Auckland and Victoria BC it meant an early start. I knew I wasn’t alone however with 150 delegates from around the world attending and at least two other poor souls from EGL up at this ungodly hour I felt part of a user community even if I couldn’t see them.
On Thursday and Friday of last week, EGL held its annual Client Conference at the Carter Observatory in Wellington. The venue was fantastic; being able to make use of the Observatory facilities in breaks, over lunch and in the evening on Thursday was a great opportunity. With food from Nosh to complement the surroundings our guests took advantage of access to the Planetarium Shows and the Thomas Cooke Refractor Telescope to get mind-blowing views of Saturn and the moon.
At the EGL Client Conference last week we announced that we are going to be introducing NSG NZ as a new brand identity in NZ. This is going to be a gradual introduction and EGL will continue to exist as a brand for a long time to come. We’ll use the two identities in parallel for at least the next two years.
